PROVO — Firefighters in Provo are reminding all Utahns to take precautions with their Christmas trees.

Provo Fire and Rescue say that a live tree can be a fire hazard.

Lights can act as an ignition source on a dry tree.

Residents should water their tree daily to prevent it from drying out.

In the case of a fire, the firefighters say to get out of your home, stay out of your home, and call 911.
